It is not a petty rule; there's a good reason for it.
That said, it's a fair point. If I'm writing a library, and I want the
library to be safely usable by both threaded and unthreaded programs,
is there anything I can do? Right now it seems the only fully viable
approach is to build two versions and hope I can figure out how to get
clients to link the right one, which is pretty sketchy.
